End-Of-Summer Fun In NYC


Get out there before the leaves start to change colors!

Summer’s certainly slipping through our fingers, isn’t it? Before you know it, us New Yorkers are going to be readying ourselves for cold weather (often by wearing more plaid and enjoying more pumpkin-spiced things). Before it comes, be sure to soak in the sunlight and enjoy the last bits of summer before it slips away. Don’t worry: There are plenty of fun end-of-summer NYC events to enjoy.

Late August

  • SummerStage concerts will still be taking place well into late August and September, so be sure to check out the often free programming happening in Central Park. (During late August, there will be events on 8/19, 8/23, and 8/30.)
  • Celebrate Harlem during this month-long festival called (somewhat confusingly) Harlem Week, which lasts until late August. It features free and fun events including everything from hip-hop concerts to auto shows. (Now until 8/22)
  • Do you want to catch the next big Broadway hit before it gets a Tony Award? Perhaps you’ll find something artsy and fun during the theater festival FringeNYC. It showcases 200 shows, all of which are $18 per ticket. (8/14-8/30)
  • This may be one of your last chances to enjoy a block party on the beach: the Annual Brighton Jubilee Festival, which takes place at Brighton Beach in Brooklyn. This event has brought people together with music for 38 years! (8/30)
  • Perhaps you need an event that will be fun for a summer date night. In that case, definitely check out some of the free movie screenings happening throughout the city. Some of the best screenings are happening during the Syfy Movies with a View events, which are in full view of the Manhattan skyline, under the Brooklyn Bridge. (8/13, 8/20, and 8/27)
  • The Central Park Conservancy also is showing off free movies, this time in the middle of the equally beautiful scenery of Central Park. (8/25-8/29)
  • Perhaps you want more of a party scene for your date. Check out Warm Up 2015, which brings DJs from across genres to the artistic setting of MOMA PS1’s courtyard. (Saturdays until 9/5)

Labor Day Weekend

  • This year, the Electric Zoo Festival will be celebrating its seventh year. Bringing the electronic-dance scene to beautiful Randall’s Island Park (by way of ferry), this year’s celebration is called Electric Zoo: Transformed, and it is bringing some of the top names in underground music to one place. This event is definitely for those looking to party. (9/4-9/6)
  • Dance beats are cool, but what about steel drums and calypso music? Also during Labor Day weekend is the West Indian American Day Carnival, which celebrates Caribbean culture in a dazzling festival that includes everything from jerk chicken to stilt dancers. Get down to Crown Heights in Brooklyn and start dancing! (9/7)
  • Families in Manhattan can enjoy a full day of carnival rides, games, bands, and performers in a traditional county fair setup on the Upper West Side: Check out the West Side County Fair. (9/6)
  • If there’s one late-summer activity to not miss out on, it’s the free Shakespeare in the Park events. The last show of the season will be The Odyssey. (9/4-9/7)


  • Those working in Queens will notice a huge influx of people as the U.S. Open 2015 tennis championship takes place in early September. (8/31-9/13)
  • The Feast of San Gennaro will be entering its 89th year and happening in Little Italy. It features colorful displays, parades, and, most importantly, a whole lot of amazing food. (9/10-9/20)
  • Early September is the best time to visit Broadway. Don’t miss out on Broadway Week, when you can get 2-for-1 tickets. (9/7-9/20)
  • Food fans may also enjoy the Harvest in the Square event taking place at and benefiting Union Square Park. It’s a premiere fine food and wine-tasting event, entering its 20th year! (9/17)
  • The Queens County Fair is perfect for families and complete with everything rural, from hayrides to pie-eating. (9/19-9/20)
  • After the kids have returned to school, families can celebrate all things STEM during the Maker Faire at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Celebrate the tinkerer, inventor, and creator inside of you, and meet some pretty cool makers. (9/21-9/27)
